Dispelling the Myths Associated with Root Canal Pain

Are you afraid of a root canal? You might be surprised to learn that these procedures will help to protect your teeth and (thankfully), they are relatively simple to complete. What should you keep in mind?

– A temporary filling will be replaced by a permanent crown with time.
– It is not likely that you will experience much pain after the procedure.
“Anyone who has a toothache should see a dentist promptly to prevent any infection from getting worse”
